I'm going to challenge Anderson to a fight, and when I lose, I'll just be negative about it so that the result appears closer to the naked eye
It's pretty popular among guys who aren't that talented...or guys who have a hard time with a style.

Werdum-Overeem II was a great example.

If Werdum fights that fight like a real cagefighter he's probably getting stopped...instead he tricked a lot of people into thinking he actually deserved the decision by jabbing and then flopping to his back for 15 minutes.

Damage is a scoring criteria and it's Edgar's own fault he does very little of it considering he often doesn't even sit down on his punches.
